Natural Rockers You May Not Know But Should: Kia

 Introduction
Hi! 🙂 My name is Kia and I am 32 years old from New Jersey (The Jersey Shore but I don’t fist pump lol) I am an Accountant at college. I stopped relaxing my hair in July of 2013 and have been fully natural for 9 months so far.

What or Who inspired you to go natural? Did you bc or transition?

 My daughter was my inspiration to become natural. She has naturally curly hair and would see me relaxing my hair and thought that only straight hair was beautiful. Then it dawned on me, even with something so minor as hair, I still have to be a positive example for her and show her that our natural texture is just as beautiful. So I gave up the creamy crack for a healthy natural hair journey, with hopes to inspire my daughter as well as anyone else who I can influence. I gave up relaxers in July of 2013 planning to transition for a year. FAIL! I got tired of dealing with 2 different textures of hair so after 6 months of transitioning I did the big chop in January of 2014.

Top three products and prices.
 My top 3 products are Tresseme Naturals Nourishing Moisture conditioner, I use this as my cowash and leave-in($5.79 @ Walgreens) Eco-styler gel *olive oil* ($2.99 @ my local beauty supplier) and Jamaican Mango Lime Black Castor oil *coconut* ($6.39 @ Sallys) they are my staple products…

Fave go to hairstyle
My go to hairstyle as of right now is the frohawk… now that my hair has a lil more length I can try a lil more. My frohawk is best after I do a twist out. That’s what I’ve been rocking mainly.

If you had to give your hair a name what would it be?
A few months ago I named my twa Carmen…now that its longer I think the name Zeena fits…lol

 

Have you ever tried hair shadowing? 
I have tried hair shadowing only once with green shadow….It was cute and I’ve been meaning to try it again with more colors. It’s definitely a fun way to play around with color without putting stress on your hair!

Sum up your natural hair journey in three words.

If I had to sum up my natural hair journey in 3 words I’d have to say… Exciting, Interesting & Beautiful…

Any advice to the natural newbies?
 Advice I would give to natural newbies would be HAVE PATIENCE… Because I know when I did my bc I thought I was going to love it at that moment and I didn’t… AT ALL. But thus far I am really starting to fall in love with my hair. It definitely gets greater later!
What was favorite compliment someone has ever given you on your hair?

My favorite compliment someone gave me on my hair was that my hair looked and felt extremely healthy and soft. That is definitely my goal thru out this journey…

If you could only watch one natural hair vlogger on youtube who would it be? why?

 If i could only watch one natural hair vlogger on YouTube it would be @mini_marley… I love her channel and her instagram. She and I have very very similar textures and she is my hair inspiration.

Finish this sentence:
 I rock my natural because: it’s beautiful and it’s me!
